Platelet Rich Plasma / Stimulation of Hair Growth / Micro-needling
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
PRP is a natural product created from your own body. A small amount of blood is drawn from you and placed in a sterile tube that is spun down in a centrifuge to separate the different components of the blood. Red and white blood cells are divided from the platelets and the plasma (the clear fluid). This plasma now contains a higher than normal number of platelets and is called platelet rich plasma, or PRP.
- FACE – Platelets are the cells in the blood that help tissue to heal and grow new cells. The PRP, injected into specific areas of the skin, act as a matrix that promotes your own collagen to grow, regenerates tissue, and naturally smooths and tightens the skin. In this way, PRP softens wrinkles and creates smoother skin texture and tone.
- JOINTS – When PRP is injected into the damaged area, it stimulates the tendon or ligament, causing mild inflammation that triggers the healing cascade. As a result new collagen begins to develop. As this collagen matures, it begins to shrink, causing the tightening and strengthening of the tendons or ligaments of the damaged area.
- STIMULATE HAIR GROWTH – PRP contains special cells called Platelets, that can cause growth of the hair follicles by theoretically stimulating the stem cells located in the Dermal Papilla as well as other structures of the hair follicle. These special Platelet cells promote healing and accelerate the rate and degree of tissue healing and regeneration, response of the body to injury, and formation of new cellular growth. The primary purpose of using PRP in hair restoration is to stimulate inactive or newly implanted hair follicles into an active growth phase.
Micro-needling Fractional Collagen Induction (Vampire Lift)
Micro needling is a very safe, effective non-surgical and non-ablative treatment for various skin conditions such as fine wrinkles, acne scarring and hyper-pigmentation. Clinical studies have shown professional micro needling to be comparable to fractional laser treatment. By traumatizing areas of the skin, it initiates skin-healing response and stimulates collagen and elastin production resulting in thicker, younger looking skin. This procedure is combined with other rejuvenation treatments, including PRP to create maximal benefit and improve penetration of topically applied vitamins, peptides, and other ingredients.
